Community partnerships can support you to ensure your work is safe and effective and communication with families can encourage the messages shared through respectful relationships education being reinforced at home.

How might this happen in your school?

  • Your school works in partnership with families and members of the wider school community to take action in support of gender equality and respectful relationships.
  • Your school actively communicates with families and communities to engage them in preventing gender-based violence and supporting respectful relationships education.
  • Your school participates in activities focused on gender equality and respectful relationships within the local and wider community, where relevant.
  • Your school engages with community organisations that can provide support for preventing and responding to violence against women.
